On 1st July 2011 Montreux hosted the reunion of two master guitarists Carlos Santana and John McLaughlin with their Invitation To Illumination concert. Both musicians have been regulars at Montreux across the years but this was the first time they headlined their own concert together. The show features most of the tracks from their classic 1973 album Love Devotion Surrender mixed in with a wealth of other material. The evening was a showcase of supreme musical virtuosity and spirituality and typified the approach of these two great artists. It is certainly a performance not to be missed. TRACKLIST 1) Echoes Of Angels / Introduction 2) The Life Divine 3) Duende 4) Peace On Earth / Dear Lord 5) A Hard Rain Is Gonna Fall 6) Stairway To Heaven 7) Lord s Prayer 8) Free America / The 8th Of January 9) La Marseillaise 10) Right Off 11) Guitar Interlude 12) Right Off 13) Vuelta Abajo 14) Vashkar 15) The Creator Has A Master Plan 16) Guitar Interlude 17) Naima 18) Lotus Land Op.47 No.1 19) Downstairs Blues 20) Venus / Upper Egypt 21) Let Us Go Into The House Of The Lord 22) Black Satin 23) Smooth Criminal 24) Land Of 1000 Dances 25) Cindy Blackman Santana Drum Solo 26) A Love Supreme 27) Montreux Boogie (inc.

Cindy blackwood ,also two bassists . Dave matthews on keyboards is very versatile getting the authentic sounds to accompany each tune and playing with a lot of enthusiasm(lets hope he will influence any new music by santana who have been a bit flat recently(except for when they play live).The concert is dedicated to Claude of the montreal jazz festival , who organised the concert , and who obviously genuinely loved these musicians(he died this year apparently)and he is invited onto the stage for the last track to jam on his blues harmonica.As well as being great music and interesting to watch ,this is also a very happy concert and everybody seems to be enjoying it ,especially Carlos who acts as the band conductor as they onviously did ,nt have lots of rehearsal time.this is a great dvd and will be quite educational to new fans of santana who may think santana are a pop band with guitar.
And its a pure performance, not a show (thank someone for that), no artificial effects, no smoke, no lazer lights. Only marvellous musicians performing. Carlos and John are not only playing music through the concert, they are actually conversating by the guitars! Carlos looks like to chew a gum through the whole concert, as if he did not even had to concentrate for the task (drummer Dennis the same), experience is visible in a new dimension? And the second drummer (or first) Cindy is a firework on stage.
Audio is exellent, picture also. I just love the concert, hope you do the same!
And here they are supported by a stellar cast mainly from Santana's regular band although McLaughlin bassist Etienne M'Bappe definitely plays a prominent role. On drums Cindy Blackman Santana and Dennis Chambers drives things forward with power and finesse together with conga legend Raul Rekow. And 'new' Santana keyboard player David Matthews really impresses with both versality and inventiveness.
Even though the repertoire comprises 4 tracks from the classic "Love, Devotion, Surrender" album the atmosphere is far from their short legendary tour of 1973. Less fiery guitar-battles and more subdued, but sublime interplay. Among the highlights in this very diverse set is 2 tracks from Lifetime propelled by Cindy (as in her excelent 'tribute' bandSpectrum Road) and a rare chance to hear McLaughlin visiting his avantgardish (acidy) past. And some sublime acoustic guitar duets.
As must be the case with a 'rehearsed jamsession' like this there are some miscues and warts but that only add to the charm of this highly recommendable concert that really lives up to it's name, inviting us to spiritual and musical illumination.
Saint John is not entirely taking things seriously.
A couple of uncomfortably prolonged tracks were probably arranged under the influence...
Worth getting just for the all-too-brief guitar duet.
